WHAT'S INCLUDED?

LODGING

5 nights private lodging, with several options that provide varied levels of privacy. Choose to stay in one of two large, rustic homes. Each of our rustic homes has one private double room with a connected private bathroom, as well as two shared rooms with twin beds and one shared bathroom. Common spaces include a comfortably decorated living room, and open kitchen with a large family-style table, and a large terrace and hottub with views of not just one, but two volcanoes! Spend the afternoon sun-bathing on the terrace, or walk down to the river and enjoy the four quartz massage beds.

If you're looking for more alone time, choose to rent our fairytale cabin. The fairytale cabin is located on the same river-side property, but sits back in the trees and affords guests with more privacy. The fairytale house features breathtaking volcano views, a garden and koi pond, one bathroom, and a loft with a double bed. Take a dip in the wood-fired outdoor hottub and enjoy some alone time with a loved one!

All lodging options include internet access, free parking, and outdoor hottub use.

We use fresh, locally sourced ingredients, and provide healthy, balanced, and organic meal options.
